After Magazine is a submission based artist magazine with a focus on music, art, fashion, lifestyle and social justice. We provide a platform for emerging artists, locally and nationwide, and ask them to share how their environment has helped shape their vision. We inspire open collaboration and accept any medium we can, from our online presence to the physical issue. People from all over are more than welcome from people as local as Chicago to Amsterdam. If you have any questions we recommend that you email us. We want any and everyone to feel comfortable submitting their work. This isn't "My" magazine, its "Ours."
The first issue of After came together right after a really hard time in my life. I decided to take my passion and turn it into a community driven magazine that would inspire people collaborate with each other. All mediums were encouraged to submit.
This is what we came up with
With issue two, I really wanted to showcase some very important and influential people around me. There was no way I could do that without recognizing women. By far the most incredible thing that's ever happened to me has been a direct result of the strong women in my life, that have propped me up, believed in me and have inspired me with their strength. So, the only logical move was to dedicate this issue to Strong Women.
Issue three was a collaboration between After and G.R.E.A.T.
A poetry collective dedicated to giving voice to the resistance in the form of powerful poems.
All the content colleceted for the issue was directly related to our past election and how people felt afterwards.
